Verses Update

It has been WAY too long since I have updated memory verses. I am sorry . . . but we can never read too much of God's Word in one day, so here's a full-fledged update! :)

Romans 8:13-20
13 - For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14 - For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 - For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 - The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 - And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
18 - For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
19 - For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
20 - For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

Psalm 101:1-8
1 - I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.
2 - I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
3 - I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
4 - A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person.
5 - Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.
6 - Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.
7 - He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
8 - I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.

Psalm 37:3-8
3 - Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4 - Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 - Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6 - And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7 - Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8 - Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

I could comment a lot about these verses, but it would take a lot of time. :) So I shall simply highlight those that God has really used to speak to me.

"For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father." (Romans 8:15) As a believer, we should not be bound by fear because this type of fear does not come from God.

"I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart." (Psalm 101:2) I know that we girls struggle with the last part, "I will walk within my house with a perfect heart." Do we? Do I? Or do I simply "let my thoughts roam" not caring whether or not they are pleasing to God?

"Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed." (Psalm 37:3) Trust in the Lord, Trust in the Lord, Trust in the Lord!!!! Verses such as these always stick out to me. Why shouldn't I trust in God? Isn't He the same God Who brought Israel out of Egypt? Who saved Daniel from the lions? Who raised Lazarus from the dead? Who rose again, defying death and the grace? How can I not trust Him?

Have you memorized any verses recently?

These were beautiful verses and thoughts, Amanda! May God help us to all hide His Word in our hearts. I remember in "The Hiding Place" by Corrie Ten Boom - when they were arrested, they had no Bible; but Corrie's papa had memorized so much of the Bible that he could recount it for others. It was a huge blessing for him, his family, and the people around them in prison.

Thank you, Amanda, for sharing these verses and thoughts with us!

Love,
Patience

Thank you, Patience.

What a wonderful testimony of how God blessed one man's dedication to memorizing the Bible! It is a comfort to know that God will bring His Word to our mind in time of trial.

As I was writing a letter to a friend the other day, I realized that we will never look back and say, "I wish I hadn't memorized/read so much of God's Word." NO! We will say, "I wish I had done it MORE!!!!" May we always strive to have that before us.
